The St. Thomas & District Horticultural Society Annual Garden Tour 2014 showcased nine extraordinary gardens with a wide range of designs. A variety of styles and ideas could be seen in three St. Thomas Gardens, plus six in Central Elgin where farm field back-drops added a beautiful expansive vista to the gardeners' handiwork.
The St. Thomas & District Horticultural Society meets at 7pm on the fourth Wednesday of the month from September to November and January to May at the Monsignor Morrison Catholic School, 10 Edgeware Road, St. Thomas. Their Annual Spring Plant Sale is held in May at the Horton Farmers Market, and the Annual June Rose and Flower Show features roses, perennials and floral designs.
